Särmä TST Perkele Morale Patch.
Särmä TST Perkele Morale Patch.

The most famous and most versatile Finnish word deserves a morale patch. If you don’t know it yet, you really should. It is technically a curse word that means “the Devil” but it has so many other functions.

You can use perkele as a strong adjective. “Hyvä” is good, but “perkeleen hyvä” is amazingly magnificent. You can also use it as a comma, full stop, or an exclamation mark in a sentence. On its own, it can express sorrow, anger, happiness, frustration, surprise, or pretty much anything depending on how you say it. And there are plenty more.

Perkele is also the best word for expressing “sisu” the famous Finnish concept described as determination, bravery, stubbornness, resilience, and plain old guts. It gives power to our national character of never giving up no matter what happens.

Since it is a perkeleen strong word, it requires a powerful pronunciation. So roll the R like you were a huge drunken bearded Scotsman mistaken for an Englishman. When shaped into a Finnish flag, this is as Finnish as you can get. So buy it, perkele!

Size 77 x 47 mm (3" x 1.85"). With hook backing to slap on your Velcro base.

Made in Finland

These are manufactured by patchmakers who manufacture insignia for the Finnish army, quality stuff!

It’s pretty good and everyone asks me what it means.
I told them it means Finnland in Finnish.

This patch makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, so I keep it close at hand. I find it goes very well on the Savotta Jääkäri backback.

Great little finnish flag, I had this on my Särmä large Rynnäkköreppu (Assault bag large), but some certain people at my school weren't big fans, but "mitä pienistä", as we say here in the Perkele land.

Love it. I carry it on my civilian bag everyday. Everybody ask if I went to Finland on vacation or something. Did I visit the Temppeliaukio? Did I feed the reindeers?. Then, from time to time, someone looks at it, and quietly smiles. They know.

Can't wait for the "Saatana" one!
